It is a fact that marijuana helps arthritis patients, anyone who’s used this drug will express how it helps you relax, and in fact there might be a list of issues the drug has dealt with entirely. If you are an arthritis patient who doesn’t respond well to synthesized and traditional medication or cannot use them for some reason, you might find the benefits of marijuana hard to believe and might even think that drug users of this type are not smart and are trying to get the drug accepted. Going with the title of the article there is scientific proof of the benefits.
One must first understand what medical marijuana is and what the one available on the streets is. Marijuana of a commercial nature can stem from several cannabis strains. According to the strength they have inflammatory or pain reducing qualities. The strength has no guarantee but the cannabis strains for medical use are specifically chosen according to potency. Some of the commercial marijuana has fertilizers, by-products, or derivatives of metal but medical marijuana is chosen with care and fertilized safely and is non-toxic. Commercial marijuana should not be bought instead of the medical one. This might jeopardize the benefits of marijuana.
The benefits of marijuana are proven and clear though some legal issues including money in some countries restrict the study of therapeutic aspects of the drug. However there is still a lot of information present about it. The information is that marijuana is anti-inflammatory; the strength of cannabis is undisputed in the healing of many illnesses, history shows the use of the drug to relieve pain going as far back as before Christ. Some studies have proven that the drug might curtail the further progression of the illness.
Dr. Tom Mikuriya who is a specialist from Mensa and is in other organizations too has studied medical marijuana and in 2002 written about the benefits of marijuana. It is a general assumption on the basis of interviewing 6500 cannabis buyers and patients that several illnesses dealing with spasms and inflammation are well handled by cannabis as a treatment. Dr. Mikuriya who is something of an authority on medical marijuana claims that illnesses such as lumbosacral disease and arthritis are well dealt by cannabis. Rheumatology Advance Access Online published in 2005 a study from Dr. Blake who belongs to the Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases. It was a trial of how cannabis can be used in treatment and the facts of the case are as follows: marijuana has historically been used for arthritis, CBD and THC found in marijuana are a major element that works well with other plant constituents, THC has been proven to be good for neuropathic and nociceptive pain, CBD and THC are both great for arthritis and block the progression of the disease.
Compared to placebos CBD reduces pain while sleeping and increases quality of sleep and DAS28 and SF-MPQ pain are reduced. There were minimal adverse effects. Due to the findings there was a demand for more studies. The good effects were found because the dosage was restricted to being in the evening to prevent intoxication. 24 hour dosage of CBM to treat multiple sclerosis resulted in minimal intoxication. The Centre Of Drug Discovery published findings in 2006 that continuous usage of cannabis had effects on immunity and that endocannabinoid research has elaborated on how that is possible. Endocannabinoid circuitry affects major immune system functions and show hope for treatment of illnesses such as arthritis, bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, atherosclerosis, asthma and autoimmune diabetes. There is no recorded case of overdose of medical marijuana and the smoke that arises during its usage does not cause lung cancer. The benefits of marijuana are best exploited when it is vaporized or baked not smoked.
